Android Auto is a platform that allows you to connect your Android mobile phone to your car and access your favorite apps, such as Google Maps, Spotify, WhatsApp and more, without constantly looking at your phone screen. In addition, it is possible to control the app through voice commands, which helps you keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
But what if you want to add a little more customization to your Android Auto experience? This is where the third party applications. Although it is true that Google’s driving system comes with a series of pre-installed apps, although there are many additional ones that you can download to improve driving and make it more comfortable.

In this article, I’ll introduce you to some apps I’ve added to Android Auto to make my connected driving a delight. From the offline browsing to the control of fuel consumption and the Video recordingthese apps can help you get the most out of your driving experience.
One of the applications that I have most enjoyed using is Sygic. It is a navigation application that works without internet connection and offers you detailed maps of all the world. In addition, it has augmented reality functions that allow you to see the navigation directions overlaid in the real world. Sygic offers a wide range of customization options, such as changing the map layout and POI icons.

This is especially useful if you travel frequently and don’t want to carry physical books around. In addition, it has an accelerated playback function, which allows you to listen to audiobooks at a faster speed.
Fuelio is an application that helps me control my fuel costs. The application allows you to record the amount of fuel you fill in your car and keep track of expenses. In addition, Fuelio offers a large number of statistics and graphs so that you can easily see how your fuel costs are performing over time.

DashCommand is an application that allows cControl and monitor car systems. The app shows information in real time, such as speed, engine temperature and tire pressure. It is also possible to view fuel consumption and receive alerts if engine problems are detected. A rather interesting program with which to anticipate failures ahead of time.
